Essay On The Day I Lost My School Bag

 
  1. Like a forgetful idiot I left my school bag on the bus with all my A2 geography notes. Folder, textbook, excerise books, exam papers, revision notes, the lot. Making everything I've done since September worthless and I'm doubtful TFL have found it but miracles happen.

    For those in/were in a similar position, how did you go about it? I have a replacement bag and stationary is easily replaceable too. But I'm really anxious and I don't whether my teachers will sympathise or even believe me. Geography is the subject I'm finding the most difficult (got a D at AS) and I desperately need to get my life in order.

    Any advise is appreciated.

  2. Have you contacted the bus company? if not I suggest doing so. Another thing is that you could print notes from online at least I could with my exam board, do you have a personal tutor that you explain your situation too?.

The day I lost my hero, my brother

JAZHR MAKOARE

READER REPORT:

I don't recall much of my childhood. Infact, I hardly recall anything, but I do recall the day I lost my hero, my best friend and my brother.

The day my life changed forever.

The last night I saw my brother Jaden he went off to touch rugby as he always did on Tuesday nights. My father, mother, sister and myself waved to him from our kitchen table as we ate dinner. He was 24, I was nine. I now recall a light that shone as he walked down the drive one last time.

The next day I woke up, got ready for school and headed to the kitchen for breakfast. Usually by this time Jaden was in the kitchen eating breakfast before work, but he wasn't there. I had a sinking feeling in my stomach and before I went to school, Mum asked me to go over to his house and check he was awake. I ran over there and as I was walking up the side of the house I could hear his alarm clock ringing. My heart sank. He wasnt there.

I opened his door and ran into the house calling out. No response. My head was hurting and my heart was racing. What was going on? Where was he? I went into his room. Bed still made. I switched the alarm clock off and ran back to my house. By the time I got back to my house I had tears rushing down my face. "Mum," I cried, "something's happened he isn't there". Mum looked at me and assured me. it's OK, he's always late. She knew as well as I did nothing was OK.

I went off to school even though I knew there was something up. I had a pounding headache and all I could think about was where my brother was. Just before lunch my teacher approached me. She told me my dad was coming to get me. I asked her why and she told me I had to wait at the gate for him and walked off. I grabbed my bag and headed for the gate. As I approached the gate I saw my dad pull up in Jaden's orange ute.

As my dad approached me I could see he had tears in his eyes. I looked at him, he looked back at me and I said "It's Jaden isn't it?". He looked back at me and nodded. I said "He's dead isn't he?". He looked at me again and said "Yes baby, he is".

That exact moment was the day my life changed forever.

Jaden was walking home from a party in the early hours of Wednesday morning when he was struck by a train about 2am. He was found just after 7am. When he was found, he had just recently passed away. My dear brother lay there in the dark alone. I am still haunted that my lovely, caring brother lay there in the dark taking his final breaths alone and scared. While I lay in my bed tucked up nice and warm. My dear brother.

The rest of my life has never been the same again. I miss Jaden more than words can ever express, I miss him more than the millions of tears I have cried for him. I would give up 1000 days to have one last moment with him, to tell him he was my best friend, my hero and the best big brother I could ever ask for. Life just isn't the same without you, dear brother.

The day that changed my life forever.
